Two things that I have treasured over the years are technology and research.  It is important for all career fields to recognize how technology trends shape the way business is run and how we work. Staying up-to-date with technology can help your organization succeed and it can help you stay relevant in your job.  I recently interviewed VP of research for the Consumer Technology Association, Steve Koenig, for the latest Mentor From Afar podcast.  Steve has one of the best jobs on the planet for a researcher. He evaluates new technology trends and how they affect consumers.  
As usual, my interviews are in two sections:the first part is on coaching and mentoring and the second part on what is going on in the world as it pertains to my guest’s career field.  Because of the quality and valuable content in this podcast, I split the podcast in two. I encourage you to check out part one of the Mentor From Afar podcast interview with Steve Koenig.  I trust you will find ever important career lessons from taking your shot to coaching and mentorship.
